Know the Aspect Ratio of Your Tires

Having the correct tire size means that your speedometer actually reflects the correct speed. Most drivers don’t realize that changing the size of the tire without taking into consideration the recommendations of the car manufacturer could alter how the speedometer projects the speed of the car. Let the Dolan Kia team help you find a suitable tire replacement from our Reno, NV dealership.

Each tire has a unit that represents the aspect ratio, which is also defined as the height of the sidewall. Normally, the aspect ratio is written as a percentage of the width of the tire. For instance, if the aspect ratio is 45, then it means the height of the sidewall is 45% of the width of the tire.
